Buckley out as BSU coach

Days after CMU decided to retain Jay Smith, BSU decided to not do the same with Tim Buckley. Buckley "has been reassigned to [the] University Development" department. This is the same tactic used when Bill Lynch was removed as football coach... reassign and hope they take another job instead of buying out the contract.

I say "It's about time... ." I always liked Tim, and he faced a lot of injury-related challenges here, but the multiple years of futility needs to end and a fresh outlook is needed. Here's the statement from AD Tom Collins (courtesy bsufans.com).

WISH-TV and the StarPress have the story as well. DN story confirms the press conference.

I'll have updates after the 3pm (ET) press conference (if there is anything new to add)...
